Three cairns on the summit ridge of Dromavally Mountain are named Cú Chulainn's House, Cú Chulainn's Bed and Cú Chulainn's Grave. It is intriguing that there are several folk-tales about Cú Chulainn recorded on the Dingle Peninsula, far away from his home area in Cooley and SE Ulster. See Knockmulanane for the legend concerning Scál Ní Mhurnáin, Cú Chulainn and the giant. Previously Reamore in MV.   Dromavally Mountain is the 416th highest place in Ireland.

Picture: Track takes you a good way up the hillside
 
Approach from the south.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  2 Mar 2015
Start at Q 614 053 A, where there are a number of houses and space to park by the side of the road. You will see a track behind an iron gate leading north, beside a farmhouse. (See pic). A friendly, elderly farmer who owns the land has previously had no objection to walkers, but it might be as well to ask his permission before using the track just as a courtesy. Follow this track as it meanders up the hillside, taking you to about 250m, where it ends in a farm structure. Continue NW up the hillside for about 1.25km, the terrain becoming increasingly steep, consisting of grass and heather, but mostly firm underfoot. The summit is marked by a large cairn.
